Ron Howard is at the helm of Rush, the much anticipated Formula 1 movie.

The hope is that it will a race fan’s homage to a great era in the sport, re John Frankenheimer’s Grand Prix, rather than the sham that was Driven.

A movie so bad that F1 kicked them out and they finished / re-shot it as a CART movie.

The movie centers on the battle between Niki Lauda and James Hunt, and includes the ’76 crash that nearly claimed Niki’s life.

I’m very much looking forward to this movie.
